Following is an excerpt from an interview with the imam of the "Red Mosque" in Islamabad, Pakistan, Mullah Abd Al-'Aziz, a.k.a. "Mullah Pakistan", which aired on Al-Arabiya TV on April 7, 2007:
Mullah Abd Al-'Aziz:
We want to reform Pakistan. We are not afraid of the government at all. We said: "If you..." The government says: "We will bring the police and attack you." I said yesterday in my Friday sermon: "If you have many policemen and soldiers - fine. Allah be praised, we are few, but we have thousands of students, who want to commit martyrdom." But we won't be the ones to start it. If the government starts it and attacks us, we will attack them, Allah willing, with martyrdom operations.
